Review: Final Girls
Title: Final Girls
Author: Riley Sager
Publication Date: July 11, 2017
Genre: Psychological Thriller/Suspense
Recommended If You Like: slasher films, strong and complicated female characters, twists and turns
Quincy Carpenter is a Final Girl, a title she never wanted and still can't accept. She was the only survivor of a massacre at Pine Cottage, where all her friends were murdered. Now, a fellow Final Girl has died, and another has shown up at Quincy's door, forcing her to remember what she hasn't been able to face for ten years.
What I Liked:
This book was so good! I could not put it down.
Final Girls is almost unbearably suspenseful throughout. Sager masterfully weaves flashbacks of Pine Cottage into the narrative. What especially ups the ante is that Quincy cannot remember what happened the night of the massacre, so the reader isn't provided with all the facts until the very end.
The twists in this book were phenomenal! I did not see any of them coming, and was completely shocked. It is rare that a book can completely surprise me on all levels, but this book pulls it off.
Anything I Didn't Like?
I really can't find anything not to like about this book. I just really, really enjoyed it.
Read this book! Seriously, it's a great psychological thriller, with tons of suspense, and so many surprises.
